  5. Select the green SAVE button in the top right hand corner to save your entries

Selecting the appropriate weight range allows you to properly organize the carrier that will be most appropriate for your customers when they are expecting to receive products from you.  As with the price range and out-of-range behaviors, the options that the customer will see depends on the products they are trying to ship.  In this case, the determining factor will be weight.  Otherwise, it will be transparent to the user.  They will only see the final sales totals (including the shipping costs) as presented in the customer cart checkout screen in the example below:
